I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)
This is the 3rd book set in this world that I've listened to in audio format - this is the first time I've been a bit "annoyed" with the narrator's "dramatization" of certain events, particularly fight and sex scenes. The narrator gets too excited, and her voice gets too high and squealy to make these scenes sound natural. Outside of these tense moments, however, the narration was fine and the characters are very distinctly read.
There was a "family" thread to the story which I think was there to bring us closer to Cat, but I didn't like it. I don't read vampire romance novels for touchy-feely family reunion type stuff, I read it for the butt-kicking (and can put up with all the porn if I have to). This one didn't have a lot of porn though, really, just one scene that was too long, the rest were quick and non-detailed.
There were a handful of pretty funny scenes/lines which I enjoyed, and Vlad was fun, but overall I think this one is the second weakest of the 7 books set in this world (book 3 of the series was ridiculous).
Loved this as much as I love all in the series. Have listened to most of them two times. Promise you will enjoy.
I have read the first four books in this series, and absolutely LOVE them!!!! I decided to get the audiobook because time to read has been in short supply. Unfortunately, this is the first time I have been disappointed in a narration. The British accent, I felt, was horrible, and completely ruined my picture of a handsome, sexy, cool and confident Bones. I had to stop not even 10 minutes in, I simply couldn't listen any more :-( While I am sure I will love this book as much as the others, I will be deleting this audiobook from my Itunes library and buying the paper copy instead!!
I havfe readed the whole series and love it. Can't wait for the next in the series, Very enjoyable
I'll start by saying I love this series. I didn't think I would at first but I have been sucked in and cannot stop listening. That's the happy part, however I can't help but be more than a little upset about how the author went about writing this book. By a happy coincident I listened to First drop of blood long before I knew about this book. So I was able to keep up but in listening to this book at the beginning I was so confused I found my self making sure I didn't miss a book. In order to understand this book you have to read two other books to know what is going on and where extra characters and previous history comes from. The author should leave it up to the reader to want to read about the other characters in the book rather than be forced into reading them in order to understand a series you have committed yourself to. The book is great as all the others are but I didn't like the sneaky tactics of the author in getting you to buy two additional books to understand a series your following. I almost stopped reading this series all together because of this I felt like it was a betrayal. You notice I said almost.....lol who can let go of cat and bones so easily? I will say if it happens again I'll rethink continuing with anymore of her books. BEWARE!!!
I REALLY LIKE KAT & BONES! NIGHT HUNTRESS IS A GREAT SERIES! THE NARRATOR DOES AN AWESOME JOB ON THESE. WONDERFUL TO LISTEN TO THESE AUDIOBOOKS, I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL THE NEW ONE COMES OUT.
Jeaniene Frost does an excellent job of creating characters in this world that --- although fantasy --- seems so real!!! This series has captured my heart and I am totally addicted. Bones' accent could have been better but the narrator does an excellent job with Kat and all the others that this is easily forgiven. I love you Bones!!!
